Q: What are your feelings towards your adopted child?


My Answer

Words fail to describe how deeply I love my two adopted children. While I have no biological children to compare them too, I honestly cannot imagine loving or caring for them any more than I already do. Yet, as each day passes, I actually DO love them more.

In addition to the deep love I feel for my kids, there are the emotions that I imagine any Mom also feels: constant worry, joy, tiredness, worry, gratitude, hapiness, frustration, scared, unsure, and worry.

Did i mention worry?
